Consider joining our Society

We are one of the largest orchid groups affiliated with the American Orchid Society. We feature monthly programs with entertaining, informative speakers and culture classes.

The public is welcome to join us on the first Tuesday of every month (except May and December) at Casa del Prado in Balboa Park. Admission is free - just bring your interest in orchids! Each first Tuesday meeting includes a mini-show: your opportunity to share a stunning bloom which wasn't ready for the previous show.

Other Society activities include quarterly orchid shows, funding support for orchid conservation programs, a species study group, plant opportunities, and orchid tours to special growers or neighboring orchid events. We maintain a large orchid reference library which members are welcome to use. Our spectacular Annual Spring Orchid Show gives you a chance to show off your beautiful bloomers. The SDCOS offers many opportunities to get more involved with orchids. We encourage you to become an active member and join the fun.
